Watch Stories from the Archives, Diaries

Diaries are important primary source records for genealogists, historians, and family members alike. Even if it’s not written by your ancestor, a diary can provide incredible insight into the daily life of an individual and a specific time and place. This recorded webinar will feature just some of the diaries held by the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections and the Wyner Family Heritage Center at NEHGS. We will also discuss how to find these resources in historical societies and other repositories across the country. Hear the stories behind these items and the families who donated them.
